Remember how I mentioned that I have an exciting surprise that I was waiting to confirm to share with you all? And remember how I said I am “chasing a dream”? Well, that dream happens to be…acting. ;D
And with this news, I suppose I can officially say I am getting back into acting after a looooooong hiatus (I’ve been acting since I was a kid, on TV and on stage, but then I left for the States and got married and had kids…and well, I guess life got in the way for a bit there).
First of all, I got a part in an online mini-series! It’s a pretty cool concept, and I can’t say much about it yet, but once it’s done I’ll let you all in on the deets of course.
Secondly, I got a part in a short movie! The script is amazing, really thought-provoking and sad (please bring tissues if you wanna watch it). I was into it from the time I read the script for the casting, and I’m so psyched to be a part of it. As with the other projects, I’ll be more forthcoming with the details once we’re done or at least start shooting.
I am so excited! I’ve been waiting to do this for a long time now it seems. I miss it. Acting has always been a passion of mine, something I’ve always enjoyed doing, and one of the few things I think I’m kinda good at. My skills are a little rusty and it’s a lot harder to memorize my lines now than it was when I was younger, but the feeling of seeing my name on the call sheet and just holding a script, man it’s the best!
I have a few more things lined up, but since I haven’t even auditioned for them yet, I’m not even gonna think about them.
Here’s to mamas "shooting" for the moon and maybe landing among the "stars" (and going on set with breastpumps instead of an entourage!)
